Personally I think it's wonderful to see such diversity within a new series. A lesson in engineering excellence at a price affordable.
It is unusual to see a single exhaust coming from the left hand side of a bike...fashion or just 'plumbing' conveniences I wonder.

an affordable price is my honda rs 250 which i payed 16 000 pounds plus another 10 000 of kits and so on.... here we start from 75 000 pounds.... lets call it cut reductions...
ok i understand an aprilia is much more expensive, but in this way will end like 500, there will be only the world cahmp for this and nothing else.... i cant see moto2 taking place even in national championships.

How long until theres a Moto2 class (with free engine choice)as a British championship event?

Come on Higgs (and Palmer) get with it, otherwise the Spanish will get the experience and development

Fabio,

I may be mistaken, but IIRC to lease a top tier aprillia 250 it ran over a million euros to do so.

I'm not sure what options that entailed or any of the specifics, but I'm certain a team can get a bike cheaper than that in Moto 2.
